didn't most of us used to get a hotmail address just for MSN Messenger? While we just got an e-mailaddress from our ISP with more space than 2MB?

but do you use anything to have a taskbar on the second monitor? If not, then of course it works fine, because you only have a taskbar on one monitor =p

RE: Google Talk is LIVE!
it's a bit minimalist, i personally am disappointed... it doesn't offer anything that wasn't available already. And i don't have a microphone so bollacks to that. I guess the fact that i's gmail integrated is a bonus. how exactly is this supposed to compete with other IMs, competition was what i was relying on.

I do however like the docking etc.  and winks and nudges are just annoying anyway.

i'm afraid that i'm not quite as torn as i thought i'd be, msn gives me everything i need. Google talk has less and i only have 3 or 4 friends with gmail.

We could tell you, but then you'd have to promise to not talk about it... Joking aside, Google Talk is still in beta, and we're working hard to add features and make improvements. We're just not quite ready yet to reveal the other cool things we've got planned. We can say this, though: we believe strongly in user choice and open standards, and we are committed to letting users access Google Talk using the client and platform of their choice, as well as to enabling our users to talk with users from other service providers.

We also want to keep making Google Talk better and we want your ideas and feedback to help make this happen! Talk to us using the Help link in the Google Talk interface. Let us know what you like, what you don't like, and what you'd really like.

yes, but they can't just bring out the first version, and have EVERYTHING in it

a) it would take to long to make, and they need to test every new feature gradually, not all at once (so if it was me, i'd add one or 2 features, test it,  release it and then make more features etc.)

b) it gets people kinda excited when they have to wait for a new release, cause they start wondering whats gonna be in it

It's alright. I don't have any friends who have gmail accounts so I can't really test it out. But the thing I really like about it - 899kb and fast!

I don't think I will be using it in months to come, everyone is on MSN. So why bother.

But, good on google. I just wish MSN Messenger was so small and fast :(

Looks good but its more like alpha; with the lack of features, i like the convo hide though. Skinning would be really easy ;)

You need an invitation to have a Gmail account ;)
But yes it's easy to have one.

The big problem for me is that you can only chat with 1 contact at a time... You can't have a chat with 3 or more contacts... :(
Sorry, if my English is not as good as I would like...
